SoundCloud Now Lets You Share Songs Directly to Instagram Stories

Spotify took a jab at screenshotting your favorite songs by introducing direct integration with Instagram Stories, allowing users to share links to songs in their story. Now, SoundCloud is releasing the same feature for its mobile app.


Starting today, users will be able to share songs uploaded to SoundCloud in their Instagram story by tapping “Share to Instagram Stories” within the share menu of the app. Afterward, you’ll be taken to the story creation interface where the song’s artwork is used as the background and a floating sticker is used as the link. It’s a small change but definitely welcome in a world where screenshotting is one of the most popular ways of sharing content with your friends.

The update is rolling out to all SoundCloud mobile users now.
